As mentioned in an earlier post, the blue rivers that traverse the Rincón de la Vieja are thought to have healing powers and people will travel from far and wide to bathe in them.
We chose to experience the purported healing powers at the Blue River Resort. Here you are able to bathe and steam in/on the volcanic enhanced waters. The source, which is really too hot to touch or bathe in, is perfectly fine for a steam room.
Next to the source are several cooler pools that span out. Each ranges in temperature, depth and size.
When we realized there was an incredibly long water slide attached to one of the pools, fish girl’s perspective on the day changed from I’m having a great day to an ecstatic this is the best day in my whole life.
